Ellephantastic Challenge #26 - Birthday Challenge

Good Morning Everyone. Wow what a month April has been. The weather has been glorious & there has been a real feel good factor about England this month. We have had Easter, St George's Day & a Royal Wedding all within a few days of each other!!!

To carry on this feeling we have a fab challenge for you this month. The challenge is being hosted by Michelle & she wants to see your BIRTHDAY/PARTY projects. Our spotlight sponsor this month is the Digi Doodle Shop & we were lucky enough to get to use some images.

I found this gorgeous image called Cecil Wrapped Up & thought it was perfect. Maybe I should have looked closer. When I printed the image out the wrapping paper had holly leaves printed on it - ooops!!! So I got round it by Paper Piecing the wrapping paper with blue spots!!! I hope you will all pop by & join in & don't forget the Mid Month Inspiration that will appear in a couple of weeks. xx Clare x
